Mom Tries to Kill Kids with Poisoned Applesauce

How awful that a parent would scheme, plan and do this to their children:

OGDENSBURG, N.Y. — A mother is accused of trying to kill her children by giving them applesauce laced with prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Police said 33-year-old Marianne Streeter, 33, of Ogdensburg, N.Y., took her 8-year-old son, Andrew, and 5-year-old daughter, Emily, to a motel in Canton, N.Y., and fed them the applesauce mixture on May 3.

Police found the children semiconscious in the hotel room after a 911 call. They were in critical condition, but have since recovered, according to TV station News10Now in Syracuse, N.Y.

And this woman - this non-parent - left them there to die alone.

They later found the mother in a cemetery, overdosed on antidepressants, but still alive.

A part of me wants to say damn it…a little bit longer and they may have found her dead. But the “human side” of me realizes that having her alive will allow the courts to deliver some type of justice - if any truly exists - for poisoning and attempting to kill her kids.

She’s being charged with two counts of second-degree-attempted-murder and two counts of first degree assault. Of course she is pleading not guilty. It’s also reported she was recently released from a psychiatric hospital where she received treatment. The “experts” might say that she should be able to get a lesser sentence (or no sentence?) if she has some type of mental illness, etc. I say keep her off the street and, in particular, away from children. She’s a danger to them and shouldn’t be put in a position to potentially harm them again.

Mom Serves Applesauce 'Cocktail'

CANTON, N.Y. (AP) -- A woman admitted Tuesday that she tried to kill her two young children by feeding them a ``cocktail'' of applesauce and prescription medications.

Marianne Streeter, 34, of Ogdensburg, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree assault in St. Lawrence County Court.

In May 2006, Streeter took her 8-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter to the Cascade Motel in Canton and fed them a mix of prescription and over-the-counter medications mixed with applesauce, prosecutors said.

The children were found in a semiconscious state in the motel room after a 911 call. They survived because Streeter eventually notified police of the children's whereabouts.

Streeter was found a short time later overdosed on antidepressants, police said. She had apparently tried to commit suicide and was wandering near a cemetery in town of DeKalb.

She will be sentenced to no less than 10 and no more than 14 years in prison July , according to the terms of a plea agreement.

Canton is 118 miles northeast of Syracuse.
